Big on Birthdays with velum

This is the 4th card created at Sherron's house in February.  A technique I tend to forget about is heat embossing, it is the technique which I fell in love with when I began stamping.  We stamped on velum paper with versamark ink the Happy Birthday (which I love)  Big on Birthdays #142877 $27 2016-2017 Occasions catalog. Then applied pewter embossing powder and heat set. We used glue dots in the corners to adhere the velum to the DSP (which you can barely see in the photo) then used the colored dots to cover up the glue dots.

The glue shows through the velum so  you have to be careful of how you adhere the velum to your project.

I could have colored on the backside of the velum the flowers after I embossed, but I forgot to do so. It was an easy card and I like the way it turned out!
